Excellent Pretzel Bacon Pub Double at Wendy’s in Ramona!

Kountry Kitchen

I “parked in rear” and enjoyed an outstanding fish & chips dinner at Kountry Kitchen recently! Three beer battered hot & crispy cod filets, served with tartar sauce, plus excellent fries and house salad for only $14.49. First time ordering the F&C here and I was impressed. Clearly NOT off the Sysco truck, that I can tell you. First time back to KK since their remodel and it was absolutely stunning inside. Highly recommend visiting if you haven’t been in a while.

Mariscos Mar de Cortez

Terrible “crab” enchiladas at Mariscos Mar de Cortez in Ramona! It was actually Krab unfortunately. I was shocked and appalled that a “Mariscos” restaurant would do something like this.


Tasty “Ultimate Omelette” at Denny’s in Ramona! Made with three eggs, sausage, bacon, fire roasted bell peppers & onions, sautéed mushrooms (omitted), maters and cheddar cheese. Hash browns had the perfect crisp and greasiness.

Way Point Saloon

WPS recently offered this great burger special know as the Cali Burger. Very similar to the thin patty, double style burger like you’d find at In & Out. Included lettuce, mater, onion, American cheese, sauce, etc. It was really tasty and very popular in Ramona. I don’t think they’re still offering it though.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Two of my favorite things at Nuevo Girl in Ramona! Excellent carne asada enchiladas!

The Par Lounge

Outstanding Calamari appetizer at The Par Lounge in Ramona! Super delicious and artfully presented, I easily ate the whole thing. It’s adorned with beautifully blistered shishito peppers, roasted peanuts, fresh lime, etc. Includes sides of a tasty sweet chili sauce and a savory peanut sauce. A very nice Asian inspired spin on calamari that is not over the top.

The Oaks Grille

Outstanding “Hangover” Omelette with bland, undercooked hash browns at the OG! I did not have a hangover, but I always enjoy ordering this. Made with sausage, jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, etc. Any egg dish here is always perfectly cooked. YMMV with the hash browns though.

The Par Lounge

Outstanding Ortega Melt at The Par Lounge in Ramona! Parmesan crusted sourdough, turkey breast (not enough), pepper jack cheese, Ortega chile, maters and chili aioli (fancy mayonnaise). Served with my favorite side, fried tots! Truly a combustion of flavor.

Mamma Ramona’s

A fairly institutional chicken parmigiana at Mamma Ramona’s. Not among the best parm I’ve had but it was decent nonetheless. I think I’ll stick with their outstanding cannelloni.
